Hey, so if you know Franklin, do you know Lamar Davis? He ain't anywhere near this Dre shit you workin' on, is he? Take it from me, you wanna keep that fool clear.
— Vernon to the GTA Online Protagonist.

Vernon is a character in Grand Theft Auto Online mentioned in the Lowriders update and later appearing as a minor character as part of The Contract update.


Not much is known about Vernon, except for the fact that he joined the Families and became an OG of the Davis Neighborhood Set. At some point, he heard about Lamar's "imminent promotion" and thought that Lamar "being the absolute ruler of everywhere was going to insult him."

Events of Grand Theft Auto Online


Hey, you know that dude Vernon? From the OGs? You know who I'm talking about, the dude that always flab mouthing about the old days. Come on man, old ugly ass Vernon.
— Lamar Davis, describing Vernon to the GTA Online Protagonist.

In 2013, after finding out about Lamar's plan to cause a turf war between the Vagos and the Ballas, Vernon gets angry at him, causing Lamar to try and calm him down by hiring the GTA Online Protagonist and associates to deliver two of his lowriders to Korean gangsters. However, the deal is interrupted and thwarted by Ballas, leading to a massive shootout and the arrest of Gerald. Afterwards, Lamar tries to make it up to Vernon by giving him two customized buccaneers stolen from the Vagos. It can be deduced that amends were made but Lamar still received a demotion.

The Contract

Vernon appears in person in The Contract update, helping Franklin Clinton and the GTA Online Protagonist to find out who has stolen Dr. Dre's phone in 2021. At first he and The Families attack the Ballas under the impression that they were the ones who stole Dr. Dre's phone, until P, the boss of the OCB set of the Ballas, reveals that it was the Vagos who stole it.

After that, Vernon and P unite both the Families and Ballas together to launch an attack on the Vagos at Rancho, taking down their leader and retrieving the copy of Dr. Dre's unreleased music.

Hey, look who it is. Man that was some serious shit we got into. You know, with the Ballas back in Benny's, right? Man, Vernon still pissed with my ass.
— Lamar Davis

Sometimes when the player finds Lamar at the F. Clinton and Partner Agency or at Record A Studios, he will refer to the events of the Lowriders update and how Vernon is still angry at Lamar to this date.
